In Full Bloom: The Orchid Exhibit

Overview
Additional Information

It may be the depth of winter, but Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens is teeming with color! Enjoy a break from winter to see hundreds of tropical orchids creatively displayed in the warm tropical exhibition area.

The Conservatory’s ongoing Sensational Saturdays 45-minute family programs exploring nature, culture, and art will feature Orchid Kokedama on February 16; sessions begin at noon and 1 p.m. Participants will adapt the traditional Japanese gardening practice of Kokedama (“moss ball”) by wrapping orchids in moss to create pot-less plants to place or hang. Included with Conservatory admission, free for members; all ages are welcome.

An Orchids for Beginners workshop will be held Saturday, March 9, at 1 p.m. Those who are new to orchids or have questions about caring for them will learn the basics with resident orchid enthusiast and volunteer Dave Picken. Included with Conservatory admission, free for members.
